Brenda and her family were driving to her grandmother’s house during a holiday. During the drive, Brenda fell asleep halfway through the trip. When she awoke, her family still had to travel half the distance that she had traveled while she was sleeping. For what fraction of the entire trip had Brenda been asleep?

Is the correct answer one half?

No. She fell asleep 1/2 way through sleeping.That left 6/12 of the trip to go. She woke up and still had 1/2 of the distance she traveled while she slept so she had 1/3 of half way to go. which means she slept for 4/12 of the trip or 1/3.

Your answer is 1/3
